In April 2012, The Star reinforced its status as the premiere entertainment venue in Australia by opening the world-renowned Marquee nightclub in Sydney. The award-winning nightclub has built an undisputed reputation as the venue of choice for music lovers and celebrities alike, with an unbeaten line up of local and international artists which have included Calvin Harris, Drake, Avicii, Tiesto, Hardwell, Diplo and Armin Van Buuren. These artists have kept Marquee at the forefront of international dance music.
In addition to live acts and music, lighting has become an essential part of the Marquee attraction with their lighting system helping to create the ultimate nightclub experience. To continue to provide the state-of-the-art nightclub atmosphere, Marquee searched for the right fixtures which would offer a significant upgrade to fill the airspace that was required in the venue, which was low to the ceiling and needed to be punchy and fast. The Rogue R1 FX-B by CHAUVET Professional fixture ticked all the boxes and complemented the existing rig as well as give the venue a unique look. Contracted to change the look was Full Throttle Entertainments Aidan Esmond, who after searching the market and seeing the Rogue FX-B’s being used on tours, festivals and major headlining night clubs across the globe decided to acquire 12 new Rogue R1 FX-B’s to its lighting rig supplied by Showtools International.
The CHAUVET FX-B fixtures has become a critical part of the nightclubs lighting rig, installed in the Main Room which is the heartbeat and focal point of the Sydney Premiere Nightclub. The FX-B is a unique fixture that enables Marquee several looks that add depth and texture without taking up a lot of space. The five independently controlled heads are a powerful tool for varying movements that facilitates many creative options in that in turn permit the beams of light to cover the stage with mesmerizing multi-dimensional looks.
The FX-B’s have performed flawlessly since being installed with weekly events on the schedule using the fixtures. The acquisition of the Rogue R1 FX-B’s to the Marquee lighting rig has helped create a vibrant atmosphere for all party enthusiasts across all shows and events.
